The Union Tribune is also covering this story but isn’t reporting any additional details.

The BikeSD reader who wrote in stated the following,

I caught this on my ride home. [There were] about 20 cop cars blocking eastbound Calle Cristobal/Sorrento Valley Rd in Mira Mesa. It appears that a car “lost control” and smashed the rear of the bike/cyclist, then crashed into the tree/wall.
The rear of the bike was trashed.
